I guess I need to clarify first but you shouldn't have drums on your 2004 Honda Pilot. From everything I can tell you should have disc brakes on the front and the back which would mean that yes you do have pads on the back. I was confussed about the first portion of your question, please clarify so I might be able to best help you. Thanks for using FixYa!

    Yes you definitely need to change your pads. As far as the rotors go you only need to get them turned if they need it. You can tell if they need to be turned if you rub your finger from the top of the rotor down towards the center and feel any ridges. If it is not completely smooth you need to get them turned or replace them completely. If they have been turned before you will need to replace them, if not they more than likely can be turned for you now. You want to make sure that the rotors are completely smooth because if not, your brake pads can't come compeletly in contact with them and stop the vehicle properly. If your rotors are really bad you will be able to see the ridges and more than likely will need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks, Keith.

2006 Honda Civic rear brake shoe replacement, can't get drum back on after shoe replacement?

there is an adjustment rod that adjusts the brake shoes out as they wear. so your parking break will work. When you install new pads, they are larger diameter than the old pads you removed, so you need to turn the adjustment rod all the way back in untill the brake drums only drag slightly. It is a good idea to clean and lubricate this adjustment rod assembly when you do a brake job.

Can't get my drum back on after replacing the shoes (Isuzu Rodeo2004-2w drive 6cyl)

I am not familiar with the Rodeo but with many vehicles there is an adjuster that you need to turn so that the pads come closer together allowing you to fit the drum over the pads. Don't adjust it too much though. The drum should just touch the pads. If you need to bring them in closer to get the drum on there is a space in the backing plate where you can insert a screw driver or and adjustment tool to crank the pads back out so that the pads just rub when you turn the drum.
Hope this was helpful. :0)

Before you take them off take a large screw driver and spread your calipers apart. Put the one you have off back on and do the same thing
